The Susquehanna Region SCCA hasn’t held a Rallye event since 2008, but before that it was a staple in our event lineup. We would like to extend a special invitation to anyone who interested in organizing a rallye event. Please contact any club officer and let them know your interest.
What’s a Road Rallye?
Rallye is often described as extremely large board game where public roads are the board and your car is the playing piece. Each car carries a driver and navigator(s) with the goal of carefully following a set of instructions that direct you along the intended course.
Teams can be friends, couples or entire families, and any and all types of vehicles are welcome to join!All you need is a pen, a friend (your navigator) and a car. That’s it! The goal is to follow the course most accurately, and at the end of the rallye, there’s usually plenty of good food and other car nuts to socialize with.
There are two types of Rallye events that are typically held — Gimmick and Timed — but they are both non-racing events held on public streets.
This type of rallye is a great way to get started. They often involve as little effort as following driving directions and answering questions about the scenery as you go.
The goal of this type of rallye is to get from a designated point A to point B in the correct amount of time, given specific directions and average speed information. It may sound tricky, but you can conceivably just watch your speedometer, follow the clues and come close to arriving at the right time. There are often rallye tables available to help if you wish to do the calculations.
Both types are an enjoyable way to spend a weekend afternoon or evening with a friend and your car, cruising the roads of South-Central PA.
Schedule a rallye event
If you would like to organize a rallye, please contact any club officer and let them know your interest. We currently don’t have any event scheduled but have run rallyes for decades. There are a number of members who can help you out, if you are ready to take the lead on setting up a rallye.
